A woman in Polk County, Fla., is now behind bars thanks in part to the Facebook Live video she streamed from Chuck E. Cheese’s.

According to WFLA, 18-year-old Markesha Wilkerson decided to go live at the Lakeland, Fla., Chuck E. Cheese’s, but apparently she forgot the saying “Streets are watching” and forgot about her two arrest warrants on charges of improper display of a firearm and failure to appear.


Polk County police routinely use Facebook Live to look for alleged criminals, and sure enough, there was Wilkerson.

“Crazy criminals are appreciated, stupid criminals are appreciated. We recommend that if you are wanted, to post on Facebook or Instagram and let us know where you are,” Sheriff Grady Judd said.

“If you are a wanted person with outstanding warrants or pick-up orders, it’s probably not a good idea to go on Facebook Live,” Judd added.

Wilkerson was booked into the Polk County Jail on no bond.
